The most popular hinges used with plantation shutters are non-mortise hinges, also known as flush hinges.
These are loose pin hinges, so it is easy to connect panels to frames by simply lining up the two parts of the hinge and inserting the pin.
Frame hinges (shown on right in picture), have a slot hole in the larger leaf which makes it easy to adjust the panel up or down. The inner panel hinges come in two options;
- A standard non-mortise hinge (left), similar to the frame hinges but without the slot hole.
- A rebated hinge (centre), used for meeting panels that have rebated or light blocking stiles fitted.
90% of the hinges we use in our factory are white, however they are also available in chrome, brass and antique brass.
These shutter hinges, along with a wide range of DIY Shutter Components are available to buy in our online store
